Without discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the minutes of the December 2, 
1987 meeting of the Board of Trustees. 

The Board then heard reports from the President and 
the Chancellors. 

President Knapp reviewed the legal issues and outcomes 
of the last legislative session and the implications for 
the current session. The Gove'rnor had reintroduced the 
Special Message on Capital Outlay and it is expected that 
this will be a priority for the Legislature this coming 
year. Second, the Subcommittee on Trust Funds, chaired by 
Representative Scibelli, is continuing its hearing on 
trust funds in higher education. 

Legislation enacted the last session expanded the 
Board of Trustees to nineteen and provides for four alumni 
trustees, two from Amherst, one from Worcester and Boston, 
three student trustees, one from each campus, and three 
additional appointments by the Governor. He added that an 
appointment to fill the current vacant seat is now 
pending. Another piece of legislation enacted related to 
endowed chairs and provides for faculty positions to be 



released with a raising o£ a million dollars for an 
endowed chair. Finally, the pension reform bill passed 
and has significant implications for the University 
particularly the removal of the $30,000 cap. 

Dr. Knapp reported that the Chancellor's search at the 
University of Massachusetts at Boston is proceeding on 
schedule. 

He reported on a number of initiatives which would be 
forthcoming from the Board of Regents this year: Student 
Financial Aid and the linkage to tuition and costs, and 
policy statements on tuition, personnel and legal 
services. Finally, he noted that the Regents policy 
statement on Salaries for Presidents and Chancellors was 
included in the Trustees' package and encouraged them to 
review it.

Trustee DiCara speaking to the concept, indicated the 
need for the Commission to be fully independent and not 
representative of people who have a vested interest in the 
status quo. Further, if it is to be viewed as an 
objective analysis of where the University stands today, 
it should be objective. 

After further discussion about the composition of the 
Commission, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That in observance of the 125th Anniversary, 

the Board establish a Commission on the Future 
of the University to examine and make 
recommendations on the future role of the

more than $175,000 to be funded from Trustee 
Reserve .

long range plan. He introduced Trustee Wingle who made an

She also distributed the Chancellor's Year in Review 
for 1987 which identifies the accomplishments of the 
Boston campus. 

Chancellor Laster then reported that the search for a 
Director of Affirmative Action has been reopened and the 
position restructured. The position will be that of 
Associate Vice Chancellor. He announced that Dr. Paula 
Stillman, Associate Dean for Curriculum and Teaching 
hosted the Deans of the five New England Medical Schools 
examining the issue - "How do you evaluate whether you 
have trained competent clinicians?" 

He reported that the campus is engaged in strategic 
planning. The issues facing the campus are: 

1) moving the campus to the next plateau of achievement 
and 

2) meeting current needs and opportunities in care and 
service -- such as high risk obstetrics and the 
integration of the care of children.

Another issue category is meeting societal needs. We 
are heavily engaged in work related to the AIDS problem, 
heart disease and prevention, and others. Another major 
issue is running the organization efficiently, effectively 
and productively. 

Another issue is developing a core of dedicated 
advocates, alumni, community leaders, affiliated Hospital 
and peer institutions. In examining the issues both short 
term and long term objectives have been identified. The 
Medical Center will provide progress reports.

and science and education faculty from the University.

construction of the Ambulatory Care Clinic is a singular step 
forward for the campus and one that is engendering a great 
sense of excitement and optimism for the future. It will be 
important for patient care, the demand for care, and it will 
also enhance the teaching of clinical medicine which is moving 
from the bedside to the clinic at a great rate because of the 
insurance mechanisms.

space for the institution.

land, from the Amherst Housing Authority. 

Neighborhood resident, Barbara Southworth 
addressed the Board about the negative impact the 
construction of subsidized low-income housing would 
have on the residential areas. On behalf of the 
residents she contended that the choice of the 
particular site was hasty, ill-advised and done 
without complete knowledge of the facts. She stated 
the University acquired the site by eminent domain in 
the 1960's and the area is still used for educational 
purposes including the campus equestrian program and a 
soil and percolation study by Plant and Soil Sciences 
Professor Daniel Hillel. She also noted that three 
single family houses are currently for sale in the 
neighborhood and suggested the Housing Authority 
purchase the homes to intergrate people into the 



-6- 



neighborhood and make them feel part of the 
neighborhood. Further, she suggested that the 
University be given the opportunity to show generosity 
to the town and to the state through the gift of 
another parcel of land which is now in its possession 
and is not being used for educational purposes. 

Connie Krueger, Amherst Housing Planner said that 
the town has gone through a very intensive review 
process and the project was part of the town's plan to

-2- 



VOTED: To approve the minutes of the October 
5, 1988 meeting of the Board of 
Trustees. 

Trustee Zervas then gave the report of the 
Committee on Academic and Student Affairs. The first 
item for consideration was the Appointment with Tenure

University of Massachusetts at Worcester, a leading

award of tenure to Dr. Judith S. Young 
as Associate Professor of Physics and 
Astronomy at the University of 
Massachusetts at Amherst and Dr . 
Leonard Laster as Professor of 
Medicine at the University of 
Massachusetts at-Wercusterr" (Doc. 
T88-081) 

The next item was to approve the Graduation Lists 
for UM/Boston and UM/Worcester . it was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED: To approve the December, 1988 

graduation lists of the University of 
Massachusetts at Boston and the 
graduation lists of the University of 
Massachusetts at Worcester subject to 
the completion of all requirements as 
certified by the Recorder of the 
campus. (Doc. T88-001E) 

The next item considered was the request of Dr. 
Barry Levy to waive the requirement that he return to 
the Department of Family and Community Medicine at the 
University of Massachusetts at Worcester for one year 



-3- 



on completion of his sabbatical leave. Trustee Zervas 
explained this item had been thoroughly discussed by 
the Committee and that the Committee had held a 
special meeting to consider all issues. The Committee 
on a vote of 3:2 recommended the Board approve the 
request. 

The Chair then introduced Dr. Lynn Eckhert, Chair 
of the Department of Family Medicine at the Medical 
School in Worcester and asked her to provide 
background about this item. She explained that Dr. 
Levy, a talented Occupational Health Physician, came 
to the University of Massachusetts at Worcester in 
1977 and was Director of the Occupational Health 
Program. In 1980 he was given a two month leave of 
absence with pay to go to Cambodia. In 1984 he was 
given a six week leave to go to China. In 1987 he 
requested a sabbatical, which was granted, and which 
he spent in Kenya. He was granted the sabbatical with 
the expectation that he would return to the Worcester 
campus and that the University would benefit from this 
sabbatical. In the spring of 1988 he requested a 
leave of absence for another year in order to do 
further work in International Health. Dr. Eckhert 
stated that the Occupational Health Program is very 
small, with only three physicians, who have service 
commitments, teach students and on site services 
commitments in industry. For the benefit of the 
department, a decision was made not to grant a year 
leave of absence to Dr. Levy. Trustees Zervas and 
Huang felt that the nature of the research work Dr. 
Levy was doing made this an exceptional case. Trustee 
Baker stated that the University, as a public 
institution, perceives a sabbatical as an investment 
in the University and with a sabbatical come 
requirements: to return for one year or return the 
past year's salary. It was moved and seconded 

To approve Dr. Barry Levy's request to 
waive the requirement that he return 
to the Department of Family and 
Community Medicine at the University 
of Massachusetts at Worcester for one 
year on completion of his sabbatical 
leave. (Doc. T88-093) 

The motion was defeated on a vote of 13:2. 

Trustee Zervas then read a Resolution which she 
asked the Chair to send to the Executive Council of 
the Hospital regarding a breach of confidentiality 
concerning the tenure process. It was moved, seconded 
and 



-4- 



VOTED : As the University discharges its 

obligations and responsibilities to 
society by the advancement and 
dissemination of knowledge, the 
variety and complexity of its task 
require and ensure the interdependence 
of the governing board, the 
administration, the faculty, the 
students and other groups within the 
academic community. The Board of 
Trustees has long recognized this 
interdependence among and within the 
three campuses. 

The Board further recognizes the 
integrity of personnel processes and 
the resultant decisions. It, 
therefore, cannot condone a breach of 
confidentiality of established 
personnel processes. Such behavior 
diminishes the University, its 
reputation, its credibility, and the 
achievement of its goals. 

She then reported that the Committee discussed a 
proposal from the Amherst campus concerning the 
reorganization of the School of Health Sciences. The 
plan would divide Nursing and Public Health and 
establish them as separate schools, each headed by its 
own Dean. This proposal will be discussed further at 
the next committee meeting. 

Next was the report of the Executive Committee. A 
motion was made to approve the Hospital Management 
Board Meeting Minutes . It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To approve the amended minutes of the 
September 28th Hospital Management 
Board including the June, July and 
August, 1988 unaudited financial 
statements, and the appointments and 
reappointments to the Medical Staff. 
(Doc. T88-084) 

The next item for consideration was a lease to the 
Amherst Housing Authority o f a 3 1/2 acre parcel of 
land abutting Fairfield Street and Berkshire Terrace 
for ninety nine years. Chancellor Duffey stated that 
the administration supports the proposal of the 
Housing Authority to build three duplexes for low 
income housing on a piece of land at the edge of the 
campus currently not used and unsuitable for any 



-5- 



building by the University. John Hite, Chair of the 
Amherst Housing Authority, stated that one of the 
stipulations of the Chapter 705 program was to find 
parcels of land from state agencies in order to reduce 
the cost to the Housing Authority. He stated that 33% 
of the Housing Authority Waiting List is made up of 
University employees or graduate student families. 
Mr. Hite presented a letter of endorsement to the 
Board from the Board of Selectmen of the Town of 
Amherst. Trustee Zervas expressed her concern with 
institution encroachment on a small neighborhood of 
ninety families. Trustee Foley, having viewed the 
property and spoken with the residents of the 
neighborhood, expressed a desire that the Town of 
Amherst make improvements in the condition of the 
street. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To authorize the Chancellor of the 
University of Massachusetts at 
Amherst, subject to review by the 
President's Office and the approval of 
the Division of Capital Planning and 
Operations, the Board of Regents and 
the Massachusetts Legislature, to 
lease for a period of 99 years a 3.5 
acre parcel of land abutting Fairfield 
Street and Berkshire Terrace to the 
Amherst Housing Authority under the 
terms and conditions set forth in Doc. 
T88-078; 



and, 



To approve, subject to the approval of 
the Division of Capital Planning and 
Operations, the Board of Regents and 
the Massachusetts Legislature, the 
transfer of ownership to the Amherst 
Housing Authority of a 33,000 square 
foot parcel at the corner of Olympia 
Drive and East Pleasant Street subject 
to the transferal of ownership to the 
Commonwealth (for University use) of a 
one acre parcel on Olympia Drive owned 
by the Amherst Housing Authority under 
the terms and conditions set forth in 
Doc. T88-078; 



and further, 



-6- 



To accept on behalf of the University 
of Massachusetts the transfer of 
ownership of a one acre parcel on 
Olympia Drive from the Amherst Housing 
Authority to the Commonwealth (for 
University use), subject to the 
approval of the Board of Regents and 
the Division of Capital Planning and 
Operations, and under the terms and 
conditions set forth in Doc. T88-078. 

As a result of the Committee's discussion 
concerning the lease to the Amherst Housing Authority, 
it recommended there be a University Land Use Policy . 
It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To direct the President to submit to 
the May, 1989 Executive Committee 
meeting a land use policy for each 
campus . 

The Board then considered an amendment to the 
Executive Compensation Policy to change the reference 
to "Special and Community Activities" to "Operating 
Support Funds". It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To amend the Executive Compensation 

Policy by deleting under the category 
Entertainment references to the 
Special and Community Activities Funds 
and inserting in place thereof 
Operating Support Funds. (Doc. 
T87-032B) 

The report of the Committee on Budget and 
Financial Affairs was then presented. The first item 
was a request to allocate an additional $45,000 from 
Trustee Reserve in order to finance the activities of 
the Commission on the Future of the University for an 
additional two months. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To allocate $45,000 from the Trustee 
Reserve to the Commission on the 
Future of the University for the 
purposes set forth in Doc T88-092. 

The next item was allocation of the Massachusetts 
Educational Loan Authority Refund to the three 
campuses. The funds will be divided equally $14,333 
per campus to purchase computer hardware and software 
and to improve financial aid counseling programs. It 
was moved, seconded and 



-7- 



VOTED : To allocate, in equal shares, to the 
three campuses, the $43,000 MELA 
refund for the purposes set forth In 
Doc. T84-034B. 

The next item was the establishment of a Capital 
Asset Fund at UM/Worcester , a self supporting fund to 
be used for capital improvements in the hospital. 
Trustee Carl in indicated that it was the clear intent 
of the Budget and Finance Committee of the Hospital 
and the Management Board that the term capital be 
broadly defined as to include those things that will 
provide long term benefits to the Medical Center, 
especially as it involves advanced medical 
technology. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To establish the University of 

Massachusetts Hospital Capital Asset 
Fund, which self-supporting fund will 
have as its purpose the funding of the 
Hospital's depreciation of its 
property, plant and equipment, all as 
more fully described in Doc. T88-086 



The next item was for approval of guidelines for 
the expenditure of endowment income of the William 
Joiner Center Endowment Fund UM/Boston . It was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the guidelines for the 

expenditure of endowment income of the 
William Joiner Center Endowment Fund 
set forth in Doc. T88-076. 

Trustee Zervas then gave the report of the 
Nominating Committee . It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To confirm and approve the officers 

and committees of the Board set forth 
in Doc. T88-094, all to serve until 
the next annual meeting of the Board. 

Chair Knowles recessed the meeting at 3:25 p.m. 
and reconvened the meeting at 3:32 p.m. upon the 
arrival of Trustee Oakes and President Knapp. 

President Knapp began his report by expressing 
personal appreciation and thanks to Chair Knowles for 
his leadership and ideas during his tenure as Chair, 
and that he hoped Andy would continue to serve the 
University in the future.

He then reported on his recent visit to the Soviet 
Union where an agreement was reached between the 
University of Massachusetts and Leningrad Polytechnic 
Institute which will provide exchange programs for 
fifteen students of each institution. Faculty 
exchanges and more extensive student exchanges are 
being worked out. 

He also reported that the University has initiated 
a City Lights Program which is a teacher-centered 
effort that is bringing University and private sector 
resources to three city high schools in Dorchester, 
Worcester and Holyoke in an attempt to give them the 
support needed to assess their situations, evaluate 
their individual needs, and develop specific 
strategies to improve teaching and learning in each 
school. 

The final item President Knapp addressed was the 
current budget situation and that the University and 
all higher education institutions are faced with 
having to revert to the State 3% of its 
appropriation. This comes on top of a series of 
reductions in spending which have taken place in the 
last fiscal year and the beginning of this fiscal 
year. The impact of this is already extremely 
severe. The Boston campus has approximately 166 
unfilled positions, student enrollment is down 
approximately 1000 and academic sections are closed. 
Similar conditions exist at the other campuses. 
President Knapp stated that the Governor was prepared 
to be helpful in working with the institutions but, 
the University could not expect relief from the 
reversion process. The Governor expressed his concern 
that he did not want anything to effect the quality of 
the institutions but that he saw a need for additional 
revenue. President Knapp requested a special meeting 
of the Board to take immediate action on any policy 
changes which might be necessary to deal with the 
reversion. 

Chair Knowles then called for a motion to enter 
Executive Session to consider Audits and strategy with 
respect to collective bargaining as it relates to the 
budget. At 3:45 p.m., it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To enter executive session 

Trustee Knowles voted for the motion as did 
Trustees Baker, Bowman, Carl in, Foley, Haynes, Huang, 
Kruczek, Mahoney, Oakes, Orefice, Reed, Walker and 
Zervas. 



-9- 



At 4:35 p. in, the Board reconvened in open session 
and it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To accept the following audits: 

Amherst Parking Garage #89-3 (Doc. T88-087 
Waltham Field Station #8904 (Doc. T88-088) 

There being no further business the meeting adjourned at

Trustee Oakes, Chair, called the Special Meeting of 
the Board of Trustees to order at 2:00 p.m. and called on 
President Knapp to detail the proposed steps necessary to 
meet the required reversion of state funds. 

President Knapp began his report by indicating he had 
received confirmation from the Board of Regents that the 
University was required to reduce spending by 3% or 
roughly $8 million, which must be achieved over the next 
six months. He noted that this reversion is the fourth 
reduction in state funding which has taken place in public 
higher education since July of 1987, reducing the total 
University budget by approximately $21 million. The 
reduction has shifted the burden of financing the 
operation from the state to other sources. Given the 
kinds of reductions the University has had this year, the 
tuition retention concept originally intended to provide 
for funding for program improvement, has had to be to 
sustain basic operations of the University. The 
University has also instituted emergency student fees at 
two campuses.

In concluding his report, he noted that the guiding 
principle in addressing this crisis has been to perserve 
the quality of the institution at all cost. To quote him 
"To do otherwise would be to undermine the accomplishments 
of the last decade and jeopardize the investment which the 
Commonwealth has made in the University. Access to 
mediocrity is no benefit to the citizens of 
Massachusetts. For more than .a century, the University 
has contributed to meeting the manpower requirements, the 
economic development and the educational needs of the 
Commonwealth. The erratic history of state support in 
recent years jeopardizes the University's ability to 
fulfill that mission. Unless the state's fiscal policy 
changes, the University will soon enroll fewer students, 
offer fewer academic programs and cost significantly more 
to attend."

The campus will also need to make severe reductions 
in non-personnel accounts including reducing lighting, and 
closing campus buildings after 5 p.m. to generate energy 
savings. This will be a major hardship for students 
because a warm building to study in when you live in a 
crowded dorm is very important. The campus will also 
reduce the coal pile inventory. 

In order to avoid taking actions which most sharply 
affect students, the campus is asking for an allocation 
from Trustee reserve and is seeking approval of an $50 
increase in the curriculum fee for the next semester. 
This was recommended with the understanding that 25% of 
that amount will be set aside for a scholarship funds and 
that all students will be allowed and urged to petition 
for relief from this fee on the basis of need. 

Chancellor Penney said the effects of the $1.8 million 
reversion on the Boston campus will be devastating. She 
detailed the mission of the Boston campus and reaffirmed 
its commitment to accessible quality higher education to 
students in the Boston area. After the first set of 
reductions last July, the campus lost $4 million, closed 
its doors to 200 qualified students and turned away 300 
more special students. Included in that group were 62 
highly qualified individuals that could not be admitted to 
graduate programs in education, at a time when the 
commonwealth and the country needs qualified teachers. 
The campus reduced its commitment to part-time instructors 
and cancelled 80 sections. The result was that the 
headcount went down 1,000 in September, 1988 from 
September, 1987. A freeze on all positions was 
instituted. Currently, 166 positions are frozen and this 
is before the new reversions, a 12% reduction of the 
workforce. The campus also cut 800,000 from its expense 
accounts, and have very little equipment and supplies to 
support programs. 

In order to reduce its appropriation by an additional 
$1.8 million the campus has put in place even more strict 
spending controls, all travel on state funds has been 
restricted, outside purchases limited and a stricter 
hiring freeze has been imposed. It has also been agreed 
to by the Vice Chancellors and Deans to contribute at 
least one day's pay to an emergency student scholarship 
fund to help students with increased fees. Beyond this, 
the campus has little choice except to reduce expenses by 
another $325,000, delay the non-unit merit to January, 
1989, use additional savings from the vacancies above and 
beyond those 166, cancel all part-time sections for the 
spring semester, impose some fee increases, and very 
reluctantly increase the curriculum support fee. 



-3- 



The cancellation of 306 part-time sections will affect 
1500 FTE. The full-time equivalents will have declined by 
2,000 in the last six months. Moreover, cancellations of 
these sections will mean Nursing students will not be able 
to complete their degrees, neither will education 
students. Cancelling the other sections will prevent 
students from getting the critical essential skills 
courses they need in math and english. 

The campus will also request support from the Trustee 
Reserve to restore some of the crucial part-time sections. 

Chancellor Laster said similar actions are being taken 
at the Worcester campus. There will be a hiring freeze 
for the non-academic departments to achieve a 10% budget 
cut, non-unit merit increases will be delayed for three 
months, and reimbursement to the affiliated hospitals for 
clerkships is being reduced to 50%. He added that the 
campus will consider imposing a student fee in the coming 
year. The Worcester campus will also ask for help from 
the Trustee Reserve to restore the capacity to buy books 
and other equipment. 

Chair Oakes then spoke about the seriousness of the 
actions the Board was considering and the implications for 
the future of the University. He added that he hoped the 
University could begin to think of ways to convince the 
legislature that the University is a priority and 
important investment in the future of the state. 

Trustee Orefice said among the student population in 
Amherst there are feelings that the $50 fee' increase is 
just another step in the wrong direction. She cautioned 
the Trustees to its implications as it would send a 
negative message to the student body in Amherst. She 
distributed to the Trustees petitions from the students 
and said it was the feeling on campus that students are 
overburdened between fees and tuition. 



Trustee DiCara, in speaking about the current fiscal 
situation, said the real challenge in dealing with the 
cuts is to support members of the Legislature who may have 
to make that even more difficult vote to increase taxes. 
He pointed out that Trustees, faculty and staff have an 
obligation to call their representatives and senators to 
say there is a problem, its not going to go away, and its 
having a dramatic impact on me, on my life, and the 
quality of life in this Commonwealth. 

Trustee Walker, who agreed with Trustee DiCara, said 
the State Legislature needs to be educated about public 
higher education in Massachusetts. For the University to 
have to raise tuition and fees to balance the State budget 
is detrimental to all students at the campuses. 

-A- 



Trustee Teixeira said he was disturbed about the 
betrayal of trust represented by the actions the Board was 
considering. Students enroll with the expectation of 
graduating in 1989, having planned their curriculum. Some 
of them will not, which is going to cause irreparable harm 
to their careers. 

Professor Hogarty, faculty representative to the 
Trustees from the Boston campus, pointed out that the 
Boston campus community met that morning at the State 
House steps to voice its demands and concerns. He also 
echoed the sentiment of Chancellor Penney that the 
clientele of students at Boston was particularly geared 
toward the poor and the disadvantaged and he entered an 
urgent plea on their behalf. He also urged strong support 
for the use of the trustee reserve in order that the 
campus does not have to cancel a great number of of 
part-time sections. 

Trustee Oakes recognized Mr. Juan Roberts and Mr. Mike 
Griffin representing the American Federation of State 
County and Municipal Employees at the Amherst campus. 

He then recognized Mr. Gerry Quarles from the 
Professional Association at the University of 
Massachusetts at Amherst (PAUMA). 

Mr. Quarles commended President Knapp and Chancellor 
Duffey for the extraordinary efforts they had made during 
the crisis, but said the Executive Board had come to the 
conclusion that the Amherst plan will not be successful 
because they feel that many on Beacon Hill would fail to 
appreciate the significance of state employees embracing 
it. In closing, he said the Executive Board's 
recommendation was that the campus revisit its program 
reduction contingency plans which were formulated some 
years ago, freeze all hiring which cannot convincingly 
demonstrate a financial savings or gain, and determine if 
its is truly the express will and intention of Beacon Hill 
to further burden students and parents with ever 
increasing fees. 

Michael Greiner, Public Policy Chair for Student 
Government Association at University of Massachusetts at 
Amherst then addressed the Board. He spoke about a recent 
article in a local newspaper that discussed how due to the 
many increases in fees, the University had turned its back 
on its mission. It was no longer the school for the bus 
driver's kid. Coming from a family who worked for the 
MBTA, he presented his views about these new fees. Even 
if financial aid were made available more than anything 
else there's a psychological barrier created. Particular 
fee increases are a dangerous precedent to set, and this 
situation is opening the way for fees to spiral way out of 
the reach of the bus driver's kid. 

-5- 



Pierre LaLiberte from the Graduate Student Senate at 
University of Massachusetts at Amherst expressed his view 
that if the Commonwealth takes seriously its commitment to 
having the Amherst campus as a major research institution, 
this was not the way to go. 

Julie Rodick, Speaker of the Student Senate at the 
Boston campus and Cindy Polinski, a student at the Boston 
campus spoke about efforts to let the legislature know 
that students cannot afford anymore increases or cuts in 
services at the campus. 

Jules Chametzky, speaking as a representative of the 
Massachusetts Society of Professors for the Faculty and 
Librarians Union at the Amherst campus, pointed out the 
union's opposition to faculty payless days and student 
increases . 




Ernest May, the delegate from the Amherst faculty 
Senate, also expressed a plea for a more rationale, more 
reasonable approach in the future and expressed the 
senate's outrage in what's going on and hoped the Board 
will find available funds before taking drastic actions. 

Trustee Carlin then proposed the following motions. 
It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To approve an increase in the 

Emergency Instructional Support 
Fee from $115 to an amount not 
to exceed $165 per semester at 
the Amherst campus and to 
extend said increase to the 
Amherst graduate students and 
from $65 to an amount not to 
exceed $115 per semester at the 
Boston campus for the period of 
January 1, 1989 through June 
30, 1989. (Doc. T88-063) 

Trustees Haynes, Kruczek, Orefice and Teixeria and 
Walker are recorded as opposed. 

It was moved, seconded and

And further, to approve an increase 
in the Non-Degree-Seeking Student 
Fee from $15.00 to $25.00 per 
semester. (Doc. T84-110A) 

Trustees Orefice and Walker are recorded as opposed. 

It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To authorize the expenditure of 
Trustee Reserve and Trust Fund 
Interest (TFI) Reserve Funds in the 
amount of $1.7 million for the 
express purpose of supporting 
academic and instructional programs 
at the three campuses, and to direct 
the Chancellors of the three 
campuses to prepare specific plans 
for the expenditure of such funds at 
their campus. Such plans are to be 
prepared within two weeks from the 
date of this vote and to be 
presented to the President for 
review and approval. (Doc. T88-095) 



-7- 



and, 

VOTED : To change the effective date of 

awarding the 3% salary adjustment 
pool to non-unit professional 
employees from October 1, 1988, as 
originally adopted by the Board of 
Trustees on August 6, 1986, to 
January 1, 1989. (Doc. T86-065A) 

Trustees Kruzcek, Orefice, Teixeira and Walker are 
recorded as opposed. 

Trustee Oakes, Chair, called for a motion to enter 
Executive Session to consider strategy with respect to 
Collective Bargaining as it relates to the budget. 

At 3:25 p.m., it was moved, seconded and 

- VOTED : To enter Executive Session 

Trustee Oakes voted for the motion as did Trustees 
Carlin, DiCara, Doherty, Foley, Hayes, Huguenin, Knowles, 
Kruczek, Mahoney, Orefice, Reed, Teixeira, Walker and 
Zervas . 

At 4:05 p.m., the Board reconvened in open session and 
it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : Whereas, the Board of Trustees 

hereby determines that retrenchment 
for financial reasons may be 
necessary, the President of the 
University is hereby directed 



or 
unaer nassacnuseccs uenerai Laws, 
Chapter 150E, and to undertake such 
actions and make such determinations 
as he shall deem necessary for the 
operation of the University. 

Chair Oakes clarified the fact that while the 
actions taken by the Board reduce expenditures for the 
University by the required amount, the institution of 
the student fee and the use of the Trustee reserve 
funds allow the University to minimize the impact of 
the reduction of positions throughout the University. 

There being no further business to come before the 
Board the meeting adjourned at 4:07 p.m.

VOTED : To recommend that the Board accept the minutes 
of the October 21, 1987 meeting of the 
Hospital Management 3oard subject to receipt 
of clarification of the matter of Directors 
and Officers Liability. (Doc. T38-007) 

The Committee then discussed Property Easement at the 
Harbor Campus. The John F. Kennedy Library had asked for 
the granting of an easement near the Library building to 
provide for a turn-around. As negotiations were still 
underway the Trustees took no action. 

Trustee Zervas said she saw a need for a policy in the 
matter of granting land or land-use at the Harbor Campus. 
She recalled the recent issue of an organization being 
granted use of land for a memorial. 3y the time the 
Trustees heard of the proposal it was all but an 
accomplished fact. Trustee Oakes suggested a resolution 
putting a moratorium on all such proposals pending the 
development of a policy. President Knapp said a draft 
resolution and policy would be prepared.

States . 



The agenda having been completed, there were 
discussions of items of interest to the University 
community. 



Two bills had been passed by the Legislature. The 
first made provision for 10 endowed chairs to be 
established on a matching funds basis. The Trustees will 
establish a trust fund for each chair, as soon as one 
million dollars has been raised from private sources the 
chair will be "activated." Salaries for the chairs will 
be funded by the state. 

The second bill changed the composition of the Board 
of Trustees. The bill established a nineteen member 
board. Three members will be student trustees, one from 
each campus. Sixteen members will be appointed by the 
Governor, two of whom will be alums elected the Amherst 
alums, one elected by the alums of the 3oston campus and 
one alum elected by the alums of the Worcester campus. 

Also discussed was a seemingly "reborn" capital outlay 
budget. A subcommittee now being formed in the 
Legislature to look into the matter of trust funds. The 
President had been asked to appear before the subcommittee 
to represent the University segment of public higher 
education. It was agreed that the Chair of the Board and 
Trustees Oakes, Chair of the Budget and Financial Affairs 
Committee, could contribute to hearing. 

There was no further business to come before the 
Committee and the meeting was adjourned at 3:15 p.m.

finest public university in New England and by

UM/Boston : Mr. Baxter, Vice Chancellor for 
Administration and Finance; Mr. Babcock, Associate 
Chancellor 

UM/Worcester : Chancellor Laster; Mr. Waterbrook, Vice 
Chancel lor /Hospital Director 

Chair Knowles called the meeting to order at 1:15 
p.m. He then noted the lack of a quorum and said the 
present meeting would only discuss the items on the 
agenda. The Committee would reconvene on April 6, the 
day of the Board meeting, and vote at that time. 

The first three items on the agenda, he continued, 
Clarification of the Hospital Management Board - 
Minutes of October 21, 1987; Hospital Management Board 
Minutes of November 18, 1987 and January 20, 1988, and 
Appointment of Marilyn Haring-Hidore were 
self-explanatory. 

The Committee then considered Revisions to the 
Code of Student Conduct — UM/Amherst. Chancellor 
Duffey said the revisions were a draft which had been 
discussed with many individuals on campus. Counsel 
Searson opined that some of the language in the 
revisions could lead to untoward results. After 
discussion it was agreed that a panel consisting of 
Chancellor Duffey, Vice President Smith and Counsel 
Searson meet to iron out the differing interpretations 
of the language. 



The next item was JFK Library Easement . Associate 
Chancellor Babcock said that the library needed more 
space for archival materials that were presently 
stored elsewhere and more meeting space. To this end 
they are planning to construct more space. 

In effect, the Library wanted two easements -- a 
permanent one on which to construct a service road and 
a temporary one to provide space for construction 
equipment . 

The present situation, he continued, is that the 
Trustees have authorized the President to grant such 
easements and had asked him to conduct the necessary 
negotiations. The Trustees would, at all times, be 
kept informed. Also, while Counsel 3ench had opined 
that the Division of Capital Planning and Operations 
would not be involved it seemed politic to inform them 
as well. 



The last agenda item was Long Range Planning . In 
response to a questions from the Chair, Vice President 
Lenhardt said it was to inform the Trustees of the 
reconstitution of the President's Planning Council. 
This because of the Regents request for an operational 
long range plan and because the plan had not been 
updated for some time. The Executive Committee would 
be informed as the plan went through its several 
stages . 

President Knapp expressed his frustration on 
having to develop a very detailed plan and operating 
the plan under a budget process which bears no 
relationship to the plan. Chancellor Laster 
questioned the validity of such plans and indicated 
that such devices could have a negative impact on the 
operation. Others concurred. 

At the conclusion of the discussion, there was no 
further business to come before the Committee and the 
meeting was adjourned at 2:25 p.m.

Chair Knowles called the meeting to order at 1:36 
p.m. He noted that the first item on the agenda was 
Clarification of the Hospital Management Board Minutes 
of the Meeting of October 21, 1987 . The matter having 
been discussed at earlier Trustee meetings, after 
brief discussion it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board amend the 

By-Laws of the Hospital Management Board 
as proposed by said Board at its October 
21, 1937 meeting as follows: 

To strike Part A, Article 4, which reads 
"The University Board of Trustees shall 
purchase and maintain insurance on any 
officer, member or agent of the Hospital 
Management Board against any expense for 
which he is indemnified hereunder." (Doc. 
T38-007, Addendum 1; Doc. T83-053, as 
amended) . 

The second item also dealt with the Hospital 
Management Board . After a brief discussion, it was 
moved, seconded and 



VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the 
minutes of the November 13, 1937 and the 
minutes of the January 20, 1933 meetings 
of the Hospital Management Board. (Doc. 
T83-013) 

The Committee then discussed the Aopointment of 

■ * 

Marilyn Haring-Hidore . At the request of the Chair 
for some background on the appointment, Chancellor 
Duffey said it was the result of a national search. 
Her previous career and education had clearly made her 
the strongest candidate for the post of Dean of the 
School of Education at the Amherst campus. The 
appointment had the full backing of the administration 
and the faculty. 

It was then moved, seconded and 

7QTED : To recommend that the Board concur along 
with the President in the appointment by 
the Chancellor of Marilyn Haring-Hidore as 
Dean of the School of Education at the 
University of Massachusetts at Amherst. 
(Doc. T88-022) 

The Committee then considered the Code of Student 
Conduct — UM/Amherst. In the course of the discussion 
it was noted that now there was congruity between 
Chancellor Duffey and general Counsel Searson on the 
language of the proposed amendment. After further 
discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board amend the Code 
of Student Conduct of the University of 
Massachusetts at Amherst (Doc. TS6-030A) 
as follows: 

(a) By deleting Part II.B.l. and inserting 
in place thereof the following: 

1. "Harrassment ," which includes but is not 
limited to: 

a. "Physical assualt" which includes but is 
not limited to physical attack upon or 
physical interference with a person which 
prevents the person from conducting his or 
her customary or ususal affairs, puts the 
person in fear for his or her physical 
safety, or causes the person to suffer 
actual physical injury. The University 
has special concern for incidents in which 
students are subject to physical assault 
because of membership in a particular 
racial, religious, gender or sexual 
orientation group. 

-2- 



b. Conduct less than a physical attack or 
physical interference which interferes 
with a person in the conduct of his hor 
her customary or usual affairs, such as 
the posting of threatening letters 
directed to the person, the use of 
threatening language directed at another, 
harassing or threatening telephone calls, 
the vandalism or misappropriation of a 
person's property, or the vandalism of a 
person's room (e.g. by graffiti). The 
University has special concern for 
incidents in which students are subject to 
such conduct because of membership in a 
particular racial, religious, gender of 
sexual orientation group. 

(b) By deleting Part V and inserting in 
place thereof the following: 

V. In recommending or determining a sanction, 
a hearing board or designated University 
official, respecitively , may consider the 
student's present demeanor and past 
disciplinary record, the nature of the 
offense, the severity of any damage, 
injury, or harm resulting therefrom, and 
other factors. The University has a 
special concern for incidents in which 
students are subject to harassment because 
of membership in a particular racial, 
religious, gender or sexual orientation 
group. Such incidents damage not only 
individuals, but also the free and open 
academic environment of the University. 
More severe sanctions are appropriate for 
such conduct. If the charge against the 
student is sustained, the responsible 
University official may impose one or more 
the following sanctions 

The Chair called for a motion to enter executive 
session to discuss the kward of an Honorary Degree . 
Without discussion, it was moved, seconded and, on 
roll call, 

VOTED : To enter executive session. 

Chair Knowles voted the for the motion as did Trustees 
Bowman, Carlin, Huguenin, Lopes, Oakes and Zervas.

Chair Knowles called the meeting to order at 1:05 
p.m. and asked that the Committee go into Executive 
Session to discuss Honorary Degrees. At 1:06 p.m. it 
was moved, seconded and, on roll call, 

VOTED : To enter Executive Session. 

Chair Knowles voted for the motion as did Trustees 
Carlin, Huguenin, Kruczek, and Oakes. Trustee Zervas 
arrived at 1:10 p.m. 

At 1:35 the Committee returned to open session and 
it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board award honorary 
degrees to those individuals agreed upon 
in executive session and to instruct the 
Chancellors to proceed with the necessary 
arrangements . 

The Committee then considered the Minutes of the 
June 15, 1988 Hospital Management Board . Trustee 
Carlin noted that on page 3 of the minutes it talks 
about the Capital Outlay Budget Bill and the bottom 
paragraph should read "Dr. Laster" not Carlin. 



He also mentioned that the issue of FTE at the 
Hospital is still not resolved and he pointed to the 
June 15th minutes, page 2 "Mr. Carlin requested to 
record the motion that the budget calls for no 
increase FTE's for the next fiscal year." Dr. Laster 
asked to go on record in complete accord with the 
commitment to have no increase. Without further 
discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the 
amended minutes of June 15, 1988 meeting 
of the Hospital Management Board of the 
University of Massachusetts Medical Center 
including the May, 1988 unaudited 
financial statement, and the appointments 
and reappointments to the Medical Staff. 
(Doc. T88-077) 

The next item on the agenda was Faculty Grievance 
Procedures for the Worcester campus. Provost Kelly 
outlined the procedures. The purpose is to "foster" 
prompt and equitable resolution of grievances by 
either informal or formal means. 

Counsel Searson's exception to that section of the 
document involving an appeal to a standing committee 
of the Board was noted. Trustee Zervas added that the 
Committee on Academic and Student Affairs recommended 
that the document be consistent with the policies on 
the Amherst and Boston campuses. It was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the 
Faculty Grievance Procedure of the 
University of Massachusetts at Worcester 
contained in Doc. T88-038A. 

The next item on the agenda was the Code of 
Student Conduct — UM/Amherst. The proposed changes 
were minor procedural changes and wording changes to 
clarify the language in the Code. Chancellor Duffey 
indicated there was concern about ensuring student 
representation on campus hearing Boards as well as the 
authority of the University Administration to appoint 
single hearing officers. An amendment was submitted 
to reflect this change. 

Trustee Orefice asked to go on record that the 
students were not in agreement with the amendment 
which provides for a decision by the Vice Chancellor 
for Student Affairs or his/her designee. After 
discussion it was moved, seconded and 



-2- 



VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the 
revisions to the Code of Student Conduct 
of the University of Massachusetts at 
Amherst contained in Doc. T86-030B, as 
amended . 

The last item on the agenda for approval was Motor 
Vehicle Rules and Regulations at the Amherst campus. 
It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the 
revisions in the Motor Vehicle Rules and 
Regulations of the University of 
Massachusetts at Amherst set forth in Doc. 
T82-023B. 

The Committee then discussed a proposal to have 
the University become the licensee and manager of the 
proposed Dock at Columbia Point. Vice Chancellor 
Babcock reviewed the history of the dock, which was 
originally conceived as a federal project and will now 
be built by the state in order to provide water access 
to all the facilities at Columbia Point. 

Since it will be a state facility, the Department 
of Environmental Management is interested in a state 
organization becoming responsible for the on-going 
management by the dock . The actual cost of 
construction of the dock is $500,000; the dredging is 
in addition to that. Initial costs entailed in 
managing the dock is estimated at less than 10% of 
construction costs plus five positions for security. 

From the discussion that followed, it was clear 
that the Committee had no interest in pursuing this 
proposal . 

There being no further business to come before the 
Board the meeting adjourned at 2:20 p.m.

Chair Knowles called the meeting to order at 2:20 
p.m. The first item on the agenda was Hospital 
Management Board Minutes . Trustee Carlin asked that 
the minutes be clarified. The minutes were changed by 
inserting under 1) paragraph 2 

For the fiscal year ending June 30, 1988, 
unaudited operating gain is $2.7 million compared 
to $1.4 million budgeted. The Hospital's August 
financial statement reflects an operating gain of 
$641,000 compared to a budgeted gain of $234,000. 
This brings the Hospital's two month actual gain 
to $887,000 compared to a budgeted loss of $26,000. 

If the level of activity continues for the 
remainder of the fiscal year, we would be ahead of 
what was anticipated. 

It was moved, seconded, and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the 
amended minutes of the September 28th 
Hospital Management Board including the 
June, July and August, 1988 unaudited 
financial statements, and the appointments 
and reappointments to the Medical Staff. 
(Doc. T88-084) 



The Chair then asked that the Committee consider 
the Amherst Housing Authority issue which had been 
discussed at the October 5th Board of Trustees meeting 
and referred to the Executive Committee. Trustee 
Bowman and Trustee Zervas spoke to the feeling of 
discontent by the neighbors, the fact that there are 
other parcels of University land that might be 
available, and the absence of a land policy. 

John Hite, Chair of the Amherst Housing Authority, 
introduced Dick Minear, an Amherst selectman and 
faculty member, and Nancy Schroder, Associate Director 
of the Amherst Housing Authority, who spoke in favor 
of the request. Mr. Hite distributed a map which 
identified the Fairfield Street site. The Housing 
Authority will be using 1 l/2 acres of the 3.5 acre 
site to build three duplexes for low-income housing, 
and the lot sizes would be consistent with that of the 
neighborhood. The support in the community to build 
these three duplexes for low income housing for six 
additional families ranged from the Board of Selectmen 
through the Planning Board, the League of Women voters 
and the local legislative members. The town currently 
has a waiting list for affordable housing of 497 
families many of whom work at the University. 

There was also a discussion of the future location 
of the Polymer Building and its relationship to the 
neighborhood. It was moved, seconded and

Authority to the Commonwealth (for 
University use), subject to the approval 
of the Board of Regents and tne Division

under the terms and conditions set fortn

The vote was 4:3. 

It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED ; To recommend that the Board direct the 
President to submit to the May, 1989 
Executive Committee meeting a land use 
policy for each campus. 

The Committee then discussed Executive 
Compensation . Chair Knowles indicated that the Board 
of Regents salary increase guidelines allow the Board 
to consider maximum increases of 12$ for President 
Knapp, 9$ for Chancellor Duffey and 1% for Chancellor 
Last er. 



The guidelines also requi 
evaluations. The Committee c

President Knapp then described concerns which are 
surfacing with the current status of the budget. 
Should the University have to revert to the State J>% 
or 3% of its appropriation, the campuses will have to 
make some very hard decisions by the campuses. In 
addition to those reversion figures the Boston campus 
is already facing a $1.2 million deficit in its fuel 
ac count . 

It was the sense of the Committee that if times 
were good the Committee would recommend the maximum 
allowable increase. However, after a lengtny 
discussion of salary increases received by other state 
employees including a 5% cost of living increase given 
to University employees on June 26, 1988 and available 
alternatives, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED ; To recommend that the Board approve, based 
on the annual evaluations, a 5$ increase 
of the state-funded salary, effective 
January 1, 1989, for President Knapp and 
Chancellors Duffey and Laster; said 
increases are comparable to those 
previously received by all other 
University employees. 

The Committee then considered an amendment to the 
Executive Compensation Policy (T87-032A) to change the 
reference to "Special and Community Activities Funds" 
to "Operating Support Funds". 

It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board amend the 

Executive Compensation Policy by deleting 
under the category Entertainment 
references to the Special and Community 
Activities Funds and inserting in place 
thereof Operating Support Funds. (Doc. 
T87-032B) 

Trustee Zervas then reported about the November 
16th Academic and Student Affairs Committee meeting 
and the incidence of a breach of the confidentiality 
of the tenure process. It was agreed that a 
resolution would be brought before the full Board 
concerning this issue and sent to the University 
Community along with a letter to the Executive Council. 

Chair Knowles then called for a motion to enter 
into executive session to discuss collective 
bargaining. The time was 3:35 p.m. It was moved 
seconded and 

VOTED: To enter executive session.

Chair Knowles voted for the motion as did Trustees 
Bowman, Carlin, Huguenin, Kruczek, Oalces and Zervas. 

At 4:00 p.m. , the Committee came out of executive

Trustee Oakes, Chair, called the meeting to order at 
2:00 p.m. The first item on the agenda was Rosalind A. 
Matthews Scholarship . 

The Committee discussed the terms and conditions of 
awarding the scholarship. President Knapp suggested that 
the Board allocate $50,000 from the Trustee Reserve to the 
University of Massachusetts Foundation. Additional 
support would be sought from private sources, e.g. John 
Hancock, NAACP. The scholarship would be a four year 
scholarship in the amount of tuition. Students eligible 
for the scholarship would be inner c ity/disadvantaged 
students, particularly graduates of the Boston Public 
School System who demonstrate financial need, enrolling in 
the School of Management at either undergraduate campus. 
The goal of the Matthews Scholarship would be to increase 
the number of minority and female students majoring in 
business administration and management. The selection 
would be made by the Board of Trustees and by application 
to the President's Office. The scholarship would be 
available to both freshmen and transfer students. 

It was then moved, seconded and 



VOTED : To recommend that the Board allocate $50,000 
from the Trustee Reserve to the University of 
Massachusetts Foundation for the purpose of 
establishing the Rosalind A. Matthews 
Scholarship Endowment Fund; the terms and

will be determined by the Board at a later 
date. (Doc. T83-006) 

The Committee then discussed Parking and Transit 
Policy and Fee Schedules — UM/Amherst. Provost O'Brien 
said the changes in the Parking Policy and Fee Schedules 
were designed to establish a more rational assignment of 
parking spaces and to insure that parking and transit will 
have a secure financial basis regardless of changes in 
outside funding. 

After further discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the 3oard approve the 

changes in the parking system and parking fees 
set forth in Doc. T83-009. 

And further, 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve a student 
transit fee of $10.00 per student for FY1939 
and 1990 and a student transit fee of $15.00 
per student for PY1991, 1992 and 1993 which is 
a phased equivalent of the student transit fee 
as set forth in Trustee Document T38-009. 

Treasurer Brand then discussed his FY37 Investment 



Report (Doc. T88-010). While the recent stock market 
crash had a deleterious effect on the University's 
investments and income, the overall performance for the 
year, on a comparative and actual basis, had been 
acceptable . 

Trustee Oakes, Chair, called for a motion to enter 
into Executive Session in order to discuss Audits . 
Without discussion, it was moved, seconded and on roll call

Chancellor for Administration and Finance; 

Chairman Oakes convened the meeting of the Budget 
and Financial Affairs Committee at 11:10 a.m. 

The first item on the agenda was Mid Year Review 
— UM/Amherst, UM/3oston, UM/Worcester. Vice President 
Lenhardt indicated that for non-state appropriated 
funds we are in a sound financial situation. The 
reviews show two or three minor trust fund issues 
concerning balances, but plans are in place to solve 
those problems . 

As far as the review of the state appropriation, 
the review must be viewed in context of the current 
budget situation. To balance the State's budget, the 
Secretary for Administration and Finance requested a 
reversion of $22 million dollars from public higher 
education. The University's share of that reversion 
turned out to be $7.5 million dollars. A freeze was 
put on funds for graduate stipends, for equipment, and 
on the funds for non-unit professional and classified 
salary increases. 



• 



The freezes have since been lifted, but the 
University is now expected to revert over 2.1 million 
dollars throughout the University. In the mid-year 
review summary deficits appear in the salary account 
at all three campuses which reflect the fact that the 
non-unit salary increase money has yet to be moved 
into the University's account. 

The share of the reversion for the University 
vis-a-vis the state colleges and community colleges, 
is disproportionate. The overall higher education 
budget the University reflects 43% of the state's 
appropriation. The reversion is 48%. 

Expectations for the 1989 budget are not 
encouraging . 

Within the mid-year review was a detailed review 
of Trust Fund Interest activity which indicates 
original budgets, adjusted budgets and expenditures. 

President Knapp indicated that a number of bills 
dealing with public higher education trust funds were 
before the Education Committee. He added that he had 
asked that Committee to defer action on those bills 
until the House Ways and Means Subcommittee on Trust 
Funds has made its recommendation. 

The problems in the fuel-utilities account at 
Boston and Amherst were then discussed. 3oth campuses 
are experiencing problems due to cuts and continued 
underfunding. 

The next item on the agenda was FY39 Student-Fee 
Based Budget and Related Fees . Under the category of 
budgets and associated non-mandatory student and other 
fees, the Committee discussed the new Student 
Counseling Fee which is assessed one time and the 
proposed increases in the Athletics fee at Boston. 

Chancellor Duffey then spoke to the proposed 
increase in the Student Health Fee at Amherst. The 
proposed change of $20 to an annual fee of $270 is 
necessary because of the increase cost of personnel. 

It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board take the 
following action: 

To approve the FY89 Student-Fee Based Budgets 
and related fees contained in Doc T83-020:

Trustee Oakes, Chair, called the meeting to order 
at 2:00 p.m. and asked President Knapp to update the 
Committee on the latest developments concerning the 
the FY89 Budget. The version reported from the House 
is estimated to represent a shortfull of $13.5 million 
for the University. Additional problems include 
deficiencies in Cooperative Extension funding and the 
potential of further reductions in 01 and 03 accounts. 
The effect this would have on the University would 
require steps being taken which might include limiting 
freshman or transfer admissions, instituting a hiring 
freeze, reducing the number of courses/and or class 
sections offered, reassessing and reducing the number 
and level of community service activities, instituting 
a moratorium on salary increases for all non-unit 
employees, and reducing the number of positions. 

With regard to the Capital Outlay budget the Board 
of Regents has proposed to the House Ways and Means 
Committee a reduction of $36 million which would 
eliminate all recommended physical education 
facilities and a further reduction of $58 million

T85-013) 

Vice Chancellor Baxter then presented a request

for twelve-month Department Chairs at the Medical - 
Center to reflect across-the-board salary increases: 
4% for FY87, 4% for FY88, and 5% for FY89. This 
recommendation also allows the President in the future

consistent with salary increases approved by the Board

The Committee discussed and tabled a request to 
establish a Financial Aid Special Project Fund from 
reimbursement from the Massachu setts Educational Loan 
Authority . The fund, as proposed, would support 
proposals from Financial Aid Directors which would 
enhance management and control of Financial Aid 
Funds. The Committee, in the course of its 
discussion, requested that a list of the specific 
projects be brought to the Committee. 

Then considered was the University Tra vel Policy . 
The new policy treats reimbursement from all funding 
sources for travel expenses consistently and allows 
for reimbursement for parking and tolls while 
operating a privately owned vehicle on University 
business in addition to receiving 22c 1 for mileage 
reimbursement. The new policy also establishes a per 
diem rate for meal reimbursement based on the number 
of hours an individual is on travel status. It was 
recommended that the per diem rate be deferred for 
implementation until FY90. 

It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the 

University Travel Policy contained in Doc. 
T88-043, for implementation at the 
beginning of FY89; however, page 6, the

Amherst Campus. The revisions to the Prince House 
Residential Contract included annual changes in dates 
and an increase in the prepayment charge from $50.00 
to $100.00 which is applied toward their rent. The 
revisions to the Residence Hall Contract include 
similar date changes and changes intended to clarify

VOTED: To recommend that the Board approve the

and, 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the

University of Massachusetts at Amherst 
contained in Doc. T79-034C. 

The Committee then heard an explanation of the 
benefits provided under the State Retirement System 
vis-a-vis the change in the Pension Reform Law "which 
eliminated the 1978 provision that stipulated for 
employees hired after January 1, 1979 the maximum 
salary upon which their retirement allowance could be 
based was $30,000. 

The Committee then reviewed the Housing Allowance 
provided for the President and Chancellors currently 
set at $1,500 per month and recommended an increase to 
$1,600 per month realizing, however, that this did not 
accurately reflect current market conditions. 

It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board amend the 
Board votes of 10/3/84 and 4/8/37 on 
Executive Compensation to increase the 
housing allowance for the President and 
Chancellors to $1,600 per month. (Doc. 
T87-032) 

Vice President Lenhardt then briefed the Committee 
on the status of the Telecommunicati ons Project. 
Funding for the Amherst campus has been received in 
the amount of $5 million in the FY88 budget, $10.4 
million is currently proposed in the FY89 budget and 
additional funds will be secured from non-state funds. 
The next steps are to identify a legal firm to develop 
appropriate contract language to handle the legal 

-D- 



details for the financing vehicle and to release the 
RFP for finance/lease purchase agreement. It is 
anticipated that the contract will be brought to the 
July 23th Committee meeting for action. 

Mr. Wolcott, Director of Internal Auditing, 
presented an interim one-year Audit Plan . The major 
areas of audit concentration for FY89 will be: 

* External audit support and coordination 

* Specific purpose audits 

* Internal control systems audits 

* EDP/MIS system control audits 

* Selected revenue-based trust funds 

* Follow-up on previous audits, internal 

and external 

* Other audits as required 

* Audit planning and program development 

A five year audit plan designed to provide 
complete coverage throughout the University is being 
planned and expected to be brought to the Committee in 
January 1989. Trustee Oakes, Chair, stressed the 
opportunity, given the budgetary constraints, to 
utilize the audit function to ensure better financial 
control, tighten operations throughout the University, 
and to look for ways to reduce expenditures. 
President Knapp emphasized the value of the auditing 
function to the University as a management function. 
It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the 

FY89 Audit Plan contained in Doc. T88-050. 

Trustee Oakes, Chair, then called for a motion to 
go into Executive Session to discuss Audits . Without

program funds separately budgeted.

requested information concerning monies appropriated 
but not expended, e.g., Telecommunication funds made 
available in 1987.

million from the Capital Outlay. Questions were 
raised as to how the University would be affected.

building. Attention was focused on the study 
selection step which requires six months from the date 
a request is made for a Design Study. Tnat step adds 
one year to the process. 

President Knapp was directed to get information on 
how construction times in Massachusetts compare with 
times in the private sector and in other States. Of 
particular interest was the loss incurred through the 
delay . 

President Knapp then updated the Committee on the 
current budget situation and the possibility of the 



-3- 



University having to revert to the State J>% or 5% of 
its appropriation. The reversions, if enacted, would 
require some very hard decisions by the campuses.

attention of the Committee. 

Provost O'Brien alerted the Committee that a 
proposal for reorganization of the college system 
within the campus would be forthcoming. The 
recommendation, which is before the Faculty Senate,

of public health, a division of nursing, and a 
department of communication disorders. The campus 
^ committee recommends that the School of Nursing and 
School of Public Health be tied together in a School 
of Health with a coordinating Dean. This model

deans serves as coordinating dean to oversee those 
matters which have a bearing on all three colleges.

Admissions and Financial Aid Reports . Ms. Nethersole, 
Director of Student Affairs in the President's Office, 
commented that there are two issues which claim 
priority on each of the campuses: debt management and 
indebtedness and recruitment retention of minority 
students . 

Dr. Madson, reporting for the Amherst campus, said 
applications are expected to increase by 8% this 
fall. SAT scores are on the rise. For Fall, 1988 the 
average Math score is 554 and Verbal is 491. The 
minority student enrollment also continues to improve. 

With regard to financial aid, out-of-state 
students are paying for tuition, fees and room and 
board, approximately $10,000; in-state students, 
$6,900. 

Vice Chancellor Babcock gave the report for the 
Boston campus. The graduate student application rate 
has increased regularly each year while at the same 
time applications at the freshman and transfer levels 
have also increased. Two thirds of incoming students 
each fall are transfer students from institutions such 
as Northeastern University, Bunker Hill, Mass Bay, 
Massasoit and Roxbury Community Colleges, Quincy 
Junior College, UM/Amherst and Boston University. 

Approximately 23% of the incoming freshman class 
each year is minority, about 15% of the transfer 
students are minority.

Dean Hanshaw said minority recruitment has 
improved (from 2% to 7% since 1983.) Debt burden .is 
increasing. The average medical student graduating in 
1984 had a debt of $25,500; in 1987 it was $32,500 and 
the highest debt in the Class last year was $76,000. 

One of the major concerns at the Medical School is 
the decline in the number of applications; 1986-870, 
1987-724, 1988-623. This decrease is attributable to 
a combination of factors: the five year residency 
requirement, demographics, the cost of medical 
education in general, the regulation of medical 
practice and the perception of medicine as a career. 

Chancellor Duffey then asked for review of an item 
not on the agenda, Revisions to the Code of Student 
Conduct . Since it was more appropriate to be voted by 
the Executive Committee, the revisions were referred 
to that Committee for review. 

There being no further business to come before the 
Committee, the meeting adjourned at 3:35 p.m.

At Worcester, the request was to change the name 
of the Medical School's Department of Anatomy to the 
Department of Cell Biology. This request received 
extensive discussion at the campus level and received 
overwhelming support from all segments of campus 
governance. Provost Kelly reiterated that the 
proposed changed does not imply a diminution in the 
commitment of the department to the study of human 
gross anatomy. It was moved, seconded and

Chancellor Corrigan expressed his shared concern 
about the quality of the building and announced, with 
pleasure, that after seven years the House 3udget 
recommended 9 million dollars for the repair and 
renovation of the 250 Stuart Street Building. With' 
regard to the Dean's position, he reviewed the search 
process and indicated that last year a finalist was 
chosen, approved by the 3oard, but in the fall the 
recommended candidate declined the position. He 
acknowledged the presence of Vice Chancellor Charles 
Desmond "who has assumed (on an acting basis) the 
Dean's position. He added further that he hoped a 
recommendation on a candidate for the Dean's position 
would be forthcoming from the Campus to the President 
and the 3oard. He concluded his remarks by saying 
that the quality of life in this building has been low 
and has deteriorated significantly over a long period 
of time but that many people have spent much time and 
energy in correcting the situation. 

Chair Zervas thanked Ms. Diver for bringing this 
matter to the Committee's attention; and, at Trustee 
Lopes request, this item will be reviewed in six 
months . 

The Committee then discussed campus proposals for 
New Programs . Provost Diener spoke to the proposal 
for a Ph.D. in Public Policy. She indicated that the 
campus has one active Ph.D. program in Environmental 
Sciences and at the upcoming commencement exercises 
will graduate its first Ph.D.. The second Ph.D. 
program in Clinical Psychology and Human Development 
has recently been approved by the Board of Regents and 
expects to be operational in the Fall, 1989. There 
are several other programs which are pending approval 
at the 3oard of Regents and include the Ph.D. in 
Computer Science and Gerontology. 

She added that the Ph.D. in Public Policy has a 
unique focus particularly relevant to Massachusetts 
and this region which is to train very technically 
sophisticated public policy analysts and policy 
developers particularly for State and local 
government. Provost Diener then introduced Professor 
Barry Bluestone who planned the program and spoke to 
the process of how the program developed. 

Professor Bluestone reiterated the program's 
uniqueness: it's a Ph.D. program with a focus on 
State and local government policy as opposed to most 
public policy programs being master's programs. The 
program will focus on an understanding of public 
policy, an analysis of the ethic and moral issues 



-5- 



behind public policy and will have a strong emphasis 
in humanities and a powerful quantitative methods 
sequence. He added that the program will have a 
strong commitment to affirmative action. 

The proposals for two new programs at the Amherst 
campus were discussed: a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 
Architectural Studies and the Bachelor of Arts in 
Dance . 

With reference to the BFA in Architectural Studies 
the Committee raised issues concerning the demand and 
market conditions and indicated a need to have these 
questions addressed at the next Committee meeting. 

Provost O'Brien in addressing the proposal for a 
3. A. in Dance said there currently exists a 3.F.A. in 
Dance which is heavily performance oriented. The new 
B.A. which will be under the Five College enterprise 
will focus on history, technique, the writing of 
dance, and more tilted in the academic direction 
conforming to the usual requirements for a 3. A. 

There being no further business to come before the 
Committee the meeting adjourned at 4:15 p.m.

Biology was not unanimous. 

Appointments with Tenure and Awards of Tenure at

tenure process highlighting the importance of the four 
year review of faculty who are on a tenure track, as 
well as the extensive review each case receives at the

Proposals to establish two new programs at the 
Amherst campus were then presented for action: the 
Bachelor of Arts in Dance and the Bachelor of Fine 
Arts in Architectural Studies . Both proposals had 
been preliminarily discussed at the previous meeting. 

With reference to the B.F.A. in Architectural 
Studies, it was noted that this would be the only 
undergraduate program in a public college or 
University for architecture within the six New England 
States. The demand for this program has been constant 
over the years, and the establishment of this program 
is an attempt to genuinely respond to the needs of the 
students who come to the University. Approximately 
seven students each year are expected to enroll in the 
program. 

After discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve, 

subject to the concurrence of the Board of 
Regents, the B.F.A. Program in 
Architectural Studies at the University of 
Massachusetts at Amherst as described in 
Doc. T88-036. 

Trustee McBay abstained. 

-3- 



> 



The B.A. in Dance, which will be offered through 
the Five Colleges Consortium, will run parallel to the 
B.F.A., a degree which is more heavily performance 
oriented . 

It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve, subject to the concurrence of 
the Board of Regents, the B.A. Program in 
Dance at the University of Massachusetts 
at Amherst as described in Doc. T88-037. 

The last action item on the agenda was Graduation 
Lists from the Worcester campus. There were two 
candidates presented to receive the Doctor of 
Philosophy in Medical Sciences and one candidate for 
the Master of Science in Medical Sciences. It was 
moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the 

Medical School Graduation Lists contained 
in Doc. T88-001C. 

The Committee then discussed the proposal from the 
Amherst Campus for a Ph.D. in Geography . Acting 
Provost Aitken pointed out that this program would be 
the first Ph.D. program in Geography at any public 
University in New England. He added further that the 
program will be part of the Department of Geology and 
Geography and will be implemented without any increase 
in resources. 

Questions raised by the Committee focused on the 
number of undergraduate students majoring in Geography 
and the level of student interest. The campus was 
requested to provide data comparing the program to 
those at Clark University and Boston University and 
whether students from these schools would transfer to 
UMass . 

The Faculty Grievance Procedure at the Worcester 
campus was outlined in detail by Provost Kelley. The 
basic purpose of the grievance procedure is "to 
encourage prompt and equitable resolution of 
grievances by either informal or formal means." He 
stressed that there is ample opportunity provided for 
resolution of a grievance outside of the formal 
grievance procedure. 

The last point related to an appeal to the 
Chancellor and in the case of a termination an appeal 
to the appropriate committee of the Board. He 
suggested that the decision of the Chancellor be final 

The Committee discussed at length three concerns 
raised by Counsel Searson and concluded that 1) they 
did not feel grievance had to be based on "procedural 
violation," 2) they thought that the grievant in 

-4- 



conjunction could decide what material was relevant, 
and 3) agreed that the Chancellor's decision should be 
final . 

The next item which was submitted for information 
was " Guidelines for Agreements with Business and 
Industry . " Vice President Smith said these guidelines 
have been extensively reviewed on all three campuses. 
After one year, the Guidelines will be evaluated in 
terms of their effectiveness and a policy will be 
brought back to the Committee for review. 

The last item on the agenda was Campus Reports . 
President Knapp reported that the Senate Ways and 
Means Committee had acted on the Capital Outlay 
Budget. It provides, as did the House bill, for 
funding for classroom building, Polymer Science 
Center, and for an engineering building at Amherst. 
At Boston, there is study money for the Student 
Services Building and at Worcester 11 million dollars 
for the Ambulatory Care Center. 

Chancellor Duffey distributed a resolution for the 
Board to endorse the continuation of a ban on the use 
of alcohol at outdoor events and a request to modify 
the Alcohol Beverage Policy to reflect this. The 
Committee discussed the continuation of the ban and 
Trustee Orefice indicated that, although she was in 
favor of the modification, that the students have not 
had an opportunity for discussion about the 
continuation of this policy. Trustee McBay spoke in 
favor of the opportunity for student input. Since the 
change was to a rule and regulation and more 
appropriately considered by the Executive Committee, 
it was referred to that committee for action. 

He then informed the Committee that as a result of 
recent publicity concerning Julius Lester, he had 
asked the Faculty Senate rules committee to prepare a 
report clarifying the incidents and whether any 
further internal action was necessary. He also asked 
them to decide on whether it was serious enough to 
call for a request for an external review of the 
issues . 

He then spoke about the campus budget situation 
and his request for an emergency instructional support 
fee. Funds generated from this fee will not address 
the budget shortfall but will go towards a new 
registration system, undergraduate teaching equipment 
and increasing teaching stipends. 

He also informed the Committee that before the 
Budget and Financial Affairs Committee will be an item 
to increase campus tuition waivers for talented 
students from 100 to 135.

At Boston, Acting Chancellor Babcock spoke of the 
importance of the additions of Dr. Brenda Cherry as 
Dean of the School of Nursing and Dr. Jemadari Kamara 
as Dean of the College of Public and Community Service. 

He, too, addressed the campuses need to institute 
an emergency instructional fee and indicated that 
without it, the campus would not be able to maintain 
the breadth and quality of undergraduate education. 
He spoke of the cost reduction measures the campus has 
already taken which include substantial reductions in 
subsidiary accounts and reductions in part-time 
faculty. 

Provost Kelly reported on the progress of several 
searches at the campus: Chair of Medicine, Chair of 
Obstetrics and Gynecology, and Dean for Minority 
Affairs. 

There being no further business to come before the 
Committee the meeting adjourned at 4:25 p.m.

Proposals to establish two new programs at the 
Amherst campus were then presented for action: the 
3achelor of Arts in Dance and the Bachelor of Fine 
Arts in Architectural Studies . Both proposals had 
been preliminarily discussed at the previous meeting. 

With reference to the B.F.A. in Architectural 
Studies, it was noted that this would be the only 
undergraduate program in a public college or 
University for architecture within the six New England 
States. The demand for this program has been constant 
over the years, and the establishment of this program 
is an attempt to genuinely respond to the needs of the 
students who come to the University. Approximately 
seven students each year are expected to enroll in the 
program. 

After discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve, 

subject to the concurrence of the Board of 
Regents, the B.F.A. Program in 
Architectural Studies at the University of 
Massachusetts at Amherst as described in 
Doc. T88-036. 

Trustee McBay abstained. 

-3- 



The 3. A. in Dance, which will be offered through 
the Five Colleges Consortium, will run parallel to the 
B.F.A., a degree which is more heavily performance 
oriented. 

It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve, subject to the concurrence of 
the Board of Regents, the B.A. Program in 
Dance at the University of Massachusetts 
at Amherst as described in Doc. T88-037. 

The last action item on the agenda was Graduation 
Lists from the Worcester campus. There were two 
candidates presented to receive the Doctor of 
Philosophy in Medical Sciences and one candidate for 
the Master of Science in Medical Sciences. It was 
moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board approve the 

Medical School Graduation Lists contained 
in Doc. T88-001C. 

The Committee then discussed the proposal from the 
Amherst Campus for a Ph.D. in Geography . Acting 
Provost Aitken pointed out that this program would be 
the first Ph.D. program in Geography at any public 
University in New England. He added further that the 
program will be part of the Department of Geology and 
Geography and will be implemented without any increase 
in resources. 

Questions raised by the Committee focused on the 
number of undergraduate students majoring in Geography 
and the level of student interest. The campus was 
requested to provide data comparing the program to 
those at Clark University and Boston University and 
whether students from these schools would transfer to 
UMass . 

The Faculty Grievance Procedure at the Worcester 
campus was outlined in detail by Provost Kelley. The 
basic purpose of the grievance procedure is "to 
encourage prompt and equitable resolution of 
grievances by either informal or formal means." He 
stressed that there is ample opportunity provided for 
resolution of a grievance outside of the formal 
grievance procedure. 

The last point related to an appeal to the 
Chancellor and in the case of a termination an appeal 
to the appropriate committee of the 3oard. He 
suggested that the decision of the Chancellor be final. 

The Committee discussed at length three concerns 
raised by Counsel Searson and concluded that 1) they 
did not feel grievance had to be based on "procedural 
violation," 2) they thought that the grievant in 

-4- 



conjunction could decide what material was relevant, 
and 3) agreed that the Chancellor's decision should be 
final . 

The next item which was submitted for information 
was " Guidelines for Agreements with Business and 
Industry . " Vice President Smith said these guidelines 
have been extensively reviewed on all three campuses. 
After one year, the Guidelines will be evaluated in 
terms of their effectiveness and a policy will be 
brought back to the Committee for review. 

The last item on the agenda was Campus Reports . 
President Knapp reported that the Senate Ways and 
Means Committee had acted on the Capital Outlay 
Budget. It provides, as did the House bill, for 
funding for classroom building, Polymer Science 
Center, and for an engineering building at Amherst. 
At Boston, there is study money for the Student 
Services Building and at Worcester 11 million dollars 
for the Ambulatory Care Center. 

Chancellor Duffey distributed a resolution for the 
Board to endorse the continuation of a ban on the use 
of alcohol at outdoor events and a request to modify 
the Alcohol 3everage Policy to reflect this. The 
Committee discussed the continuation of the ban and 
Trustee Orefice indicated that, although she was in 
favor of the modification, that the students have not 
had an opportunity for discussion about the 
continuation of this policy. Trustee McBay spoke in 
favor of the opportunity for student input. Since the 
change was to a rule and regulation and more 
appropriately considered by the Executive Committee, 
it was referred to that committee for action. 

He then informed the Committee that as a result of 
recent publicity concerning Julius Lester, he had 
asked the Faculty Senate rules committee to prepare a 
report clarifying the incidents and whether any 
further internal action was necessary. He also asked 
them to decide on whether it was serious enough to 
call for a request for an external review of the 
issues . 

He then spoke about the campus budget situation 
and his request for an emergency instructional support 
fee. Funds generated from this fee will not address 
the budget shortfall but will go towards a new 
registration system, undergraduate teaching equipment 
and increasing teaching stipends. 

He also informed the Committee that before the 
Budget and Financial Affairs Committee will be an item 
to increase campus tuition waivers for talented 
students from 100 to 135. 



-5- 



At Boston, Acting Chancellor Babcock spoke of the 
importance of the additions of Dr. Brenda Cherry as 
Dean of the School of Nursing and Dr. Jemadari Kamara 
as Dean of the College of Public and Community Service 

He, too, addressed the campuses need to institute 
an emergency instructional fee and indicated that 
without it, the campus would not be able to maintain 
the breadth and quality of undergraduate education. 
He spoke of the cost reduction measures the campus has 
already taken which include substantial reductions in 
subsidiary accounts and reductions in part-time 
faculty. 

Provost Kelly reported on the progress of several 
searches at the campus: Chair of Medicine, Chair of 
Obstetrics and Gynecology, and Dean for Minority 
Affairs . 

There being no further business to come before the 
Committee the meeting adjourned at 4:25 p.m.

UM/Worcester : Provost Kelley 

Trustee Zervas, Chair, convened the meeting at 2:07 p.m. 
Dr. Leverett Zompa, the Acting Provost at the Boston Campus, 
was introduced to the Committee. 

The first item on the agenda was the Award of Tenure at the 
Amherst and Boston campuses. Vice President Smith indicated 
that the campuses and the President's Office have extensively 
reviewed the tenure cases before the Committee. After 
discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board concur with the 

President in the award of tenure to Kei May Lau 
as Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer 
Engineering at the University of Massachusetts at 
Amherst ; 



Further , 



To recommend that the Board concur with the 
President in the award of tenure to Emilie Steele 
as Associate Professor of Applied Language and 
Mathematics at the College of Public and 
Community Service. (Doc. T88-072) 



The next item the Committee discussed was the Establi shment 
of a Major in Philosophy and Public Policy at the Boston 
campus. Richard Freeland, Dean of the College of Arts and 
Sciences and Professor Foster of the Philosophy Department 
spoke to the new major which will be sponsored by the 
Department of Philosophy. 

It was indicated that nationally there is a growing 
interest among philosophers in public policy issues. As a 
result of a study, a pilot course called "Philosophical 
Foundations in Public Policy" was developed and offered in 
September, 1985. By offering this course, the department found 
there was a strong student interest and that the Philosophy 
Department was attracting students who had strong policy 
concerns and career interests and many who were already working 
in policy and governmental areas. 

The curriculum developed is quite distinct from other 
majors. Among the offerings, there is an internship and a 
senior year directed study. The types of internships would be 
in government agencies, court systems, with environmental 
groups or health care groups. The major also has an 
interdisciplinary focus which requires students to take two 
Policy Issue courses from other departments. 

It is also felt that the distinct major, rather than the 
standard philosophy major, would be more attractive to 
potential employers. 

It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve, subject to 

the concurrence of the Board of Regents, the 
establishment of a Major in Philosophy and Public 
Policy at the Boston Campus as described in Doc. 
T88-073. 

The next item on the agenda was the Ph.D. Program in 
Geography at the Amherst campus . Provost O'Brien distributed 
written responses to questions raised by the committee during 
the initial presentation in July. Professor Piatt from the 
Department of Geology and Geography responded to questions 
about the number of majors in the Geography program over the 
last several years and the program's strengths as compared to 
those programs offered by Clark and B.U. 

It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board approve, subject to 

the concurrence of the Board of Regents, the 
Ph.D. Program in Geography as described in Doc. 
T88-055. 

The next item on the agenda was approval of the Graduati on 
Lists at UM/Amherst . The list includes 283 undergraduates and 
5 continuing education candidates recommended to receive 
degrees in September 1, 1988. 

-2- 



It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the September 

1, 1988 graduation lists, Doc. T88-001D at 
Amherst subject to certification of completion by 
the Recorder of the campus. 

The next item was a Change in Nomenclature --UM/Amherst . 
The Department of Spanish and Portuguese requests a change in 
the name of its Ph.D. Program from Spanish to Hispanic 
Literature and Linguistics. The change will more correctly 
describe the nature of the graduate program. 

It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board change the name of 

the Ph.D. Program in Spanish and Portuguese at 
the Amherst campus to the Ph.D. Program in 
Hispanic Literature and Linguistics. (Doc. 
T88-066) 

The last item on the agenda for approval was to Establi sh 
Three Endowed Chairs at the University of Massachusetts Medical 
Center. The chairs are the result of a bequest of $3,000,000 
from the late Richard M. Haidack. The income from the capital 
will be used to enhance the activities of the departments. 
This gift is unequaled in the history of the University. 

It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board establish the 

following endowed chairs at the University of 
Massachusetts : 

The Celia and Isaac Haidak Distinguished 
Professorship in Medical Education; Gerald L. 
Haidak, M.D., first incumbent. 

The Harry M. Haidak Distinguished Professorship 
in Surgery; H. Brownell Wheeler, M.D., first 
i ncumbent . 

The Richard M. Haidack Distinguished 
Professorship in Medicine, first incumbent will 
be the individual who is to be recruited as the 
new chair of the Department of Medicine. 

All chairs will be under the terms and conditions 
set forth in Doc. T88-074. 

The Committee then discussed the Faculty Grievance Document 
at the Worcester Campus. The Committee had previously 
discussed this document and at that time, there were still some 
difference of opinion. Counsel Searson's exception to that 
section of the document involving an appeal to a standing 



-3- 



committee of the Board was noted. The proposed document is in 
line with current Trustee policy which provides for an appeal 
to the Board of Trustees in cases involving termination of 
faculty appointments at Amherst and Boston and the Committee 
felt it should be maintained as recommended. 

The revisions to the Code of Student Conduct at the Amherst 
campus were then discussed. The proposed changes were minor 
procedural changes and wording changes to clarify the language 
in the Code of Student Conduct. An additional amendment was 
submitted by Vice Chancellor Madson and Student Trustee 
Orefice. The amendment was intended to ensure student 
representation on hearing boards in a majority of cases. When 
Counsel Searson objected to the amendment on the ground that 
the language would unnecessarily increase the risk of 
litigation, it was agreed that an effort should be made to 
submit to the Executive Committee on September 20th revised 
language agreeable to all concerned. 

The Committee then discussed the Mission Statement at the 
Amherst campus and suggested that the document be written in a 
clear and concise fashion. Specifically, it should identify 
where the University thinks it's going, who the competition is 
and what its positioning is going to be in ten years. 

The next item discussed was major agenda items to be 
included for future meetings. Additional items suggested was 
the Proliferation of Degree Programs and Student Retention. 

The Committee then heard reports from the campuses. At 
Worcester, Provost Kelly, reported on the collaborative 
arrangement with the Amherst campus Division of Public Health 
to make Public Health courses available on the Worcester 
campus. He also spoke about the impact of the budget cuts. Of 
immediate concern was the reduction in the library budget. 
This issue is under review by various faculty bodies, and it is 
hoped that the cuts can be absorbed without doing any damage to 
the extensive collection of high quality reference journals. 

At Boston, Chancellor Penney commented about searches 
underway for the Director of Libraries, the School of 
Education, the Provost and the Director of Urban Harbors. She, 
too, commented on the affects of the budget. 

There being no further business to come before the 
Committee, the meeting adjourned at 3:55 p.m.

The first item was the >A-waj:v&- of Tenure to Dr. Jane B. Lian, 
Professor of Cell Biology at the University of Massachusetts 
at Worcester, was described as a leading scientist in the area

It was moved, seconded, and, 

Voted To recommend that the Board concur with the 

President in the award of tenure to Dr. Leonard

University of Massachusetts at Worcester. (Doc. 
^ T88-081) 

The next item was Graduation Lists of Degree candidates from 
Boston and Worcester. The list from the Boston campus 
included 410 candidates for the Bachelor's degree and 86 for 
the Master's degree. At Worcester, there were two candidates 
for the Master's degree and three for the Doctor of Philosophy. 

It was moved, seconded and, 

Voted : To recommend that the Board approve the 
December, 1988 graduation lists of the 
University of Massachusetts at Boston and 
graduation lists of the University of 
Massachusetts at Worcester subject to the 
completion of all requirements as certified by 
the Recorder of the campus. (Doc. T88-001E) 

The final item for action by the Committee was a request from 
Dr. Barry Levy at the Worcester campus to make an exception to 
the Sabbatical Leave Policy . The campus did not support the 
request. The request dealt specifically with that portion of 
the Academic Personnel Policy that requires faculty members to 
return to the University for one year on completion of their 
sabbatical leave or refund the salary received during the 
r. sabbatical leave. 
> -2- 



The Committee reviewed at length the material presented. Dr. 
Levy had been on Sabbatical at the Kenya Medical Research 

Institute from September 1, 1987 through August 31, 1988. 
Prior to his expected return, he applied for an additional one 
year leave of absence without pay. That request could not be 
accommodated by the Department. Dr. Levy then elected to 
resign effective August 30th rather than return to his 
position. Associate Council Tillotson described the efforts 
the campus made to accommodate Dr. Levy and alternative 
presented to him to avoid the payback. She further indicated 
that she was working with Dr. Levy's attorney to arrange 
repayment through his retirement withdrawal. 

The Committee having just received the material the previous 
day raised questions about why the campus denied the request 
for a leave of absence and asked that any conditions he may 
have placed on his returning be provided to the Committee. 

The matter was then tabled pending receipt of additional 
information from the campus. A special meeting of the 
Committee was scheduled for December 7th at 1:30 p.m. to 
continue discussion about this item. 

The next item on the agenda was the Reorganization of the 
School of Health Sciences at the University of Massachusetts 
Amherst. Provost O'Brien summarized the changes which would 
create a separate School of Public Health Sciences and a 
School of Nursing. Professor Dreher, Director of Nursing, 
UM/Amherst spoke of building a stronger Nursing program in 
order to attract faculty and students. Dr. Gehlbach pointed 
out that there are only two other schools of Public Health in 
New England and that they are private institutions. Dean 
Darity, having been responsible for the School of Health 
Sciences which includes the Divisions of Nursing, Public 
Health and Communicative Disorders and retiring this year, 
expressed that he is a proponent of the establishment of two 
separate schools. Provost Kelly conveyed his endorsement as 
well . 

This item will be brought back for action at the next meeting. 

The next item discussed was the Report on Student 
Discipline . The presentation was explained by Larry Moneta , 
Director of Residential Education and Charmaine Wi jeyesinghe, 
Special Assistant to the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs. 
The first Code of Conduct was established in 1967 and remained 
unchanged until 1984 when matters of academic honesty, 
computer access and hazing laws were included. The major 
change was that it became an umbrella document on campus and 
defined behavior that was in violation of student conduct.

1:11 



Larry Moneta, Director of Residential Education reviewed 
residence hall discipline action in regards to appeals board, 
suspension, and expulsion. 

The Committee then heard Campus Reports . At Boston, Provost 
Zompa, reported on the Day Care Center, which had been given 
notice to close by the Boston Fire Department, due to volatile 
compounds in the Chemistry Labs of the building. He stated 
that the safety of the children was the first concern. The 
Center has been given an extension until December 25, 1988. 
Arrangements have been made with the Harbor Point Day Care 
Center, pending state approval of that building, for the Day 
Care Center to incorporate with them. 

Provost Kelly' stated that they have commenced the 
reaccreditation self study at Worcester in preparation of 
accreditation next year. Dr. Kenneth Noller has accepted the 
Chairmanship of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology 
effective February, 1989. He comes from Mayo Medical School, 
where he has been Professor of Gynecology. 

Provost O'Brien reported that accreditation at Amherst has 
been completed, and that the University was described as a 
transformed institution. 

There being no further business to come before the Committee, 
the meeting adjourned at 3:55 p.m.

Representative 

Trustee Zervas, Chair, called the meeting to order 
at 1:30 p.m. The special meeting was called to 
continue the discussion regarding the request of Dr. 
Barry Levy to waive the requirement that he return to 
the Department of Family and Community Medicine at 
UM/Worcester for one year on completion of his 
sabbatical leave. 

Dr. N. Lynn Eckhert, Chairman of the Department of 
Family and Community Medicine, presented the 
background of the request. Dr. Levy came to 
UM/Worcester in 1977 as an internist and specialist in 
Occupational Health. As Director of Occupational 
Health he was also interested in the area of 
International Health. He had been granted paid leaves 
of absence for two months in 1980, to go to Cambodia, 
and six weeks in 1983 to go to China. In 1987 he was 
granted a year sabbatical to go to Kenya, with the 
expectation that he would be doing work beneficial to 
the Occupational Health Program, the Department and 



the University. From this experience, his interest 
grew in International Health and he discussed pursuing 
and developing a division of International Health at 
the Medical School. In the spring of 1988, he 
requested a leave of absence for an additional year to 
continue working in Africa after which he would return 
to fulfill his full year requirement at the Medical 
School. Dr. Eckhert explained the department and 
administrative reasons for refusal to allow the 
additional year's absence: the Occupational Health 
Program is made up of three physicians with service 
commitments, industrial sites contracts, a residency 
program, and research projects. Dr. Levy's delay in 
returning would effect the individuals and 
departmental plans. 

Vice President Smith stated that in the private 
sector sabbatical leave is considered a right. In the 
public sector an individual must be eligible, apply, 
and fulfill all requirements for a sabbatical leave 
including the stipulation that he/she return for one 
year. He stressed that there is an accountablity to 
the public dollar. 

There then ensued a lenthly discussion of the 
nature of the research work the individual was doing 
which made this an exceptional case and the message 
which would be sent to the faculty. Trustee Walker 
expressed his concern that by granting a waiver the 
Board would be setting a precedent, but he believed 
that growth should not be stifled and that this was a 
truly exceptional case. 

It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board approve Dr. 
Barry Levy's request to waive the 
requirement that he return to the 
Department of Family and Community 
Medicine at the University of 
Massachusetts at Worcester for one year on 
completion of his sabbatical leave. (Doc. 
T88-093) 

Trustees Baker and Kruczek are recorded as opposed

intent of this item was to identify that for staff 
members who have a role in affecting affirmative 
action their demonstration in terms of compliance with 
affirmative action goals would be noted on their 
performance appraisals. 

Associate Vice President Willits then informed the 
Committee that the decline number of available 
minorities of faculty and staff in higher education

Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity 

Trustee Huguenin, Chair opened the meeting at 1:35 p.m. and 
introduced and welcomed Mr. James Wells, Associate Vice 
Chancellor for Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity. 

The item before the Committee was a request to approve the 
1987-1988 Affirmative Action Plan for the University o f 
Massachusetts at Amherst The nondiscrimination and affirmative 
action statement, as presented by the campus, included 
prohibiting "discriminatory treatment of employees, students, 
applicants for student status or employment on the basis of 
sexual orientation, or political belief or affiliation." This 
statement extends beyond the current, University-wide policy 
statements acted on by the Board of Trustees and what is 
required by federal and state law. 

Associate Vice President Willits indicated tnat the 
Affirmative Action Committee had discussed tnis issue in 1^84 
and 1985 and, at that time, did not include discrimination on 
the basis of sexual orientation or political belief or 
affiliation into the affirmative action and equal opportunity 
resolution policies approved by the Board. She further 
indicated that review of the issue again by the Trustees would 
be timely and appropriate. 



Ms. Gant stated that the Boston campus has incorporated into 
its 1982 Institutional Policy Statement which was part of its 
Affirmative Action Plan approved by the Board that it would not 
discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation/preference. 

The possibility of separating the affirmative action policy 
and non-discrimination policy in terms of now policies are 
applied to different groups was suggested, tne fact that tnis is 
a moral and ethical issue was identified, and the potential 
liability issues were raised as a counterargument. 

The Committee deferred action on the Affirmative Action plan 
and policy statement in order to review the complete text of tne 
plan, to listen to all arguments concerning the issue, and to 
have further discussion as to whether the issue of sexual 
orientation and political belief and affiliation should be 
included into a University-wide policy statement. 

There being no further business to come before the 
committee, the meeting adjourned at 2:10 p.m.

He said he hopes to reduce the need for additional 
revenue by obtaining more state capital dollars, reducing 
the cost of the lease/purchase agreement, and successfully 
negotiating modest cost savings with the vendor without 
trading off essential components. 

Questions were raised and discussion ensued about the 
location of the Ericsson installations in the east, 
maintenance of the installation, the result of the 
financing evaluation and, the process by which the 
recommendation was developed. The Committee asked for 
additional information about maintaining the current 
system over the next ten years. 

Chancellor Duffey then presented his concerns about 
the proposed system, especially the required student fee 
increases and recommended that the following conditions be 
established:
